Homemade Orange Marmalade
I had a mountain of aging oranges that went unconsumed when we were all out of town for an extended period of time. They were too nice to throw out, but not nice enough to eat anymore so I thought I'd take a stab at making my own marmalade It might not be as pretty as the store bought variety, but it is delicious! This recipe makes a sweeter California style marmalade -- considerably less bitter than the variety that you buy in most stores. It's easy but the chopping and cutting does take a little bit of time. Put on a good old movie and get to chopping. Well worth the effort! Yummy on a homem
Wash and dry the oranges. Use a sharp knife or vegetable peeler, remove a thin a layer of peel/rind. Try to exclude any pith (the white portion of the peel). Chop into small pieces and put into saucepan. Cover with water and simmer about five minutes. Repeat twice, draining after each round of simmering.
